SECOND 2019 MAJOR UPDATE
Mon, 2 December 2019

New Features and Fixes

DECEMBER 2019 UPDATE
This important update was made essentially to fix a few known issues but also to allow for gameplay improvement for new features that will be progressively used in the upcoming 2020 title, or, when updated, retrofitted inside the existing ones.

*** IMPROVEMENTS ***

   (Regions) Added support for new feature : possibility to define nations as default owners of regions
   (Map) Implemented new Information Anchors (e.g. useful to display extra critical information as a graphic icon)
   (Movement phase) The confirmation dialog displayed when going to next phase without any movement can now be dismissed permanently.
   (Replacements) Implemented a system allowing to schedule replacements through the Reinforcement system without need to use cards.
   It is no longer possible to assign replacements to stacks that are not currently in a supplied region
   (Structures) Added per-structure option to limit the number of units that can enter a structure (leaders excluded from the count)
   Added optional system that allow fortresses to reclaim control of their region if no enemy force occupies it, or if there are only enemy leaders/support units present in the said region.
   (Reinforcements) Added scenario option to hide AI's reinforcements
   (Summary) Casualties tab now displays Leaders killed or wounded in battle.
   
   (Battle) Implemented new rule allowing to start a fortress assault (resolved by a battle with specific combat factor modifiers) instead of besieging the structure. Assaulted fortresses have a default garrison to defend them, added to the regular units that maybe already be in fortress.
   (Battle/Siege) Implemented unit capture system (e.g. will be useful to capture supply wagons or other units)
   (Battle) Implemented optional rule to ignore the Differential of Leader Morales when computing battle modifiers
   (Battle) Implemented optional rule to ignore the Differential of Leader Combat Factors when computing battle modifiers
   (Battle) Implemented optional rule to ignore the regular loss differences Victory Points awarded by battles (only VP awarded by regions and structures capture and/or cards are kept)

*** FIXES ***

   (FOW) Fixed bug where the tooltip for units made invisible BY FOW was still displayed
   (Cards) Fixed bug where launching a game from a save reset the max number of cards in hand to the engines default value instead of the value specified in the scenario
   (Movement) Fixed a bug that made it difficult to move a stack into a structure already containing units.
   (Battle) Fixed localization erros in the retreat message
   (Siege) Fixed a bug where a fortified structure taken by siege would incorrectly keep its blockaded status.
   (Options) Fixed a bug that prevented from changing the AI level in In-Game options
   (Initialization) Players are now created in an order that corresponds to the play order of Sides. Fixes potential bugs and fixes known bug where the second player would get a wrong match identifier if the sides definition and play order do not match with those specified in the editor.

Minor Update - Frame Rate optimization
Wed, 11 December 2019


an extra function to reduce FPS on powerful machines

** IMPROVEMENTS **
- (Graphics) Added options setting to enable VSync
- (Graphics) If VSync is disabled, the target frame rate for the game is set to 60. Previously, the game would run at maximum allowed FPS, which would be unnecessary on powerful configurations.

NB: activating Vsync reduces visual artifacts (screen tearing) but may slightly reduce game reactivity. This could be problematic on older machines or those with little RAM.

Minor Spring Update
Wed, 22 April 2020



Some game engine changes and fixes In anticipation to this month's release (Caesar 58, coming on April 30th)


*** IMPROVEMENTS ***

   (Retreat) When several regions are possible, the game now selects the one that would cause the minimum amount of unit destructions (because of units that cannot follow the others or of overstacking in difficult regions).
   (Retreat) Attacking Sea stacks can now retreat to a port if they just get out of
   (Retreat) Units that cannot retreat using the locomotion type between battle region and chosen retreat region are now destroyed
   (Fortress Assaults) Assaulting a weakly defended fortress no longer wrongly gives combat factor bonus to the attacker and malus to the defender. It's set to zero on both sides.
   (Replacements) Improved realism : replacements are no longer possible for air and sea units that are not inside a structure or a transporter. It is now possible to assign replacements to units that are currently inside transport units.


*** FIXES ***

   (Reinforcement) Fixed bug where cards supposed to rebuild destroyed units had not effects
